Florida Retirement Communities for Adults 55 and Older – What Explains their Popularity?

Florida Retirement Communities Retirement communities in Florida that restrict residency to people ages 55 and older are designed with the lifestyle goals of retired men and women in mind. Often called 55+ communities, 55 and over communities, or age-restricted communities, the purpose of these developments is to give active, older adults the opportunity to spend their retirement years staying active in a secure and affordable setting with lots of amenities on-site. Legally, at least 80 percent of the residents at such retirement communities in Florida must be 55 or older, and no one under the age of 18 may be in permanent residence. The popularity of 55+ communities in the Sunshine State and elsewhere continues unabated, especially now that members of the so-called “baby boom” generation are beginning to retire in large numbers and looking to downsize. Determining whether a 55+ community is right for you can be aided by scheduling a tour and speaking with several of the current residents in person.
